“A brilliant base to explore the Lake District from”
Comb Beck is a brilliant base from which to explore the Lake District. It's quiet ( apart from the babbling stream), warm, comfortable and tastefully appointed with all the luxuries one needs after a long day's hike. The central heating was fabulous, as was the log fire and the beds very comfy. Close to but away from the bustle of Keswick, Comb Beck offers a genuinely secluded location overlooking the beautiful and diverse Whinlatter Forest, as well as the Comb Beck and a pretty garden. It is also close to three excellent pubs in Braithwaite to cap off the day's activities. Our host Helen welcomed us with a bunch of flowers, and was efficient and clear with communicating prior to and after our visit. The cottage is fully stocked with an excellent library and sets of maps and Information about the Lake District, making it easy to plan the days. We definitely want to come back here on our next visit as it was such an ideal setting and memorable stay. Thank you Helen, we will be recommending Comb Beck far and wide.
